The Language of Flowers


Floral symbols adorn the earliest poetry, and over the centuries they became increasingly entwined with myth and legend, religious symbolism, and herbal folklore. By the early nineteenth century the "language of flora" was an elaborately refined system, especially in England and America, where books listing flower meanings and illustrating them with verse were perennial bestsellers. This anthology shares poems from around the world honoring flora.
